I’ve been to a few all you can eat sushi places in Montreal and have had some good and some bad experiences. Never anything spectacular. While that didn’t change after visiting Sushi 999, I was impressed with what they brought to the table, literally and figuratively. For the price, quality, and selection of food, there aren’t many places that beat it.
I had never heard of Sushi 999 before a friend suggested we go there for dinner with the guys. We all love sushi and we all LOVE BYOW’s! We went on a friday night and the place was packed so you might want to make reservations. Don’t expect some opulent restaurant, it’s not. It’s rather plain and boring looks-wise. I for one couldn’t care less about what the place looks like as long as you put a good plate of food in front of me.
We were five very hungry guys and ordered what seemed like just about everything on the menu. They forgot to bring us our last plate which was probably for the better as three of us already had to undo our belts. Here are some of the things we ate, I can’t remember the rest because I ate myself into a sushi coma:
Sirloin Beef Teppanyaki
Sashimi: Snapper, Salmon, White Tuna, Mackerel,
Sushi 999 (Maki)
Red Bean Ice Cream
The Sushi 999 was phenomenal. The sashimis tasted really fresh, the mackerel was really flavorful (very fishy, very good…if you like fishy stuff). The only thing I wasn’t impressed with was the dumplings.
As for the service, I didn’t have any issues. You are at a bring your own booze AND all-you-can-eat restaurant, don’t expect 5-star white glove service. I don’t need someone standing by my side while I eat in case I desperately need something but I found their staff always there when our table needed anything. No less than three different employees came to our table during our meal whenever we glanced in their direction. Servers, bus boys, and hosts were all willing to help whether it was ‘their job’ or not and were very helpful…even for a busy Friday night.
They’re open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and offer take-out as well. Lunch is $23, dinner is $25. Ask about student discounts.
Overall, a great spot for some all you can eat sushi and a good experience Don’t forget your bottle(s) of wine!
